Library of Things conversational thinkery

Library of Things

I originally met the founders of the Library of Things at a Platform Co-ops conference a few months ago, and was really inspired by the enterprise they had set up. For me it’s in the sweet spot of my interests: community oriented, a mashup of physical/digital, technology for good, and of course a social enterprise solving real problems.

Their social start-up had generated (and still does) a significant amount of interest from organisations and individuals wishing to do the same or similar. In response, the team decided to organise a boot camp, inviting those serious with the concept to work though their ideas amongst friends and experts. As the bootcamp was conversationally oriented, the team asked if I would help capture some of the thinking that emerged.

The bootcamp looked at different lending models, and the ideation of a back-end platform, as well as looking at the similarities and differences of each interested party’s circumstance, environment and available resources.

As always, I came away having learned a thing or two. Here’s a selection of the final artwork:
